Bourbon Mobility is supporting Saipem on the construction of the LNG terminal on the Greater Tortue Ahmeyim field off the coast of Mauritania and Senegal, with the chartering of 2 vessels, the Sirocco FSIV (Fast Support Intervention Vessel) and the Surfer 2609. World leader in personnel transportation in the Oil & Gas industry, Bourbon Mobility has been able to provide its client with a flexible offer, adapted to the logistical challenges of the project and to the specific sea conditions of this region, and this, in a brand new operating area for BOURBON.

The Bourbon Sirocco has the advantage of being a multipurpose vessel, allowing both the management of crew changes and the routing of regular supplies. It has a large deck space, with a capacity of 200 tonnes and 60 seats for passengers, while being fast and of an ideal size to evolve according to local maritime conditions. As part of its mission, the vessel performs three supply runs a week between Dakar and the Hub (120 nautical miles from Dakar).

It is in this context that Saipem and Bourbon Mobility are extending their partnership. The Surfer 2609, a 26-meter personnel transport vessel with a 50-seat passenger cabin, provides 2 to 3 runs per week and reinforces the initial scheme based on the Bourbon Sirocco alone. Initiated in 2021, the project will last several more months.

"The flexibility and adaptability demonstrated by Bourbon Mobility's teams, and in particular the crews of the two vessels, are key to the success of this contract," said Rhodri Williams, project manager at Saipem. "We are working hand in hand to best complete our project and make it a success."

François Leslé, CEO of Bourbon Mobility comments: "It is a source of pride for our company to accompany Saipem on this key project of the Tortue Ahmeyim field. We are doing everything possible on a daily basis to deliver operational excellence with the highest safety standards, through competent crews and vessels adapted to our client's needs."
